Woman Who…Rising Star in Secondary Education
You will be studying at School or equivalent. You will be a true asset to your educational establishment. You are successful in your studies and you are really going places in the future with your chosen career. You truly deserve the recognition for your achievements to date both inside and outside of your chosen study.
Guidelines for Entry: This Category will not be interviewed. You therefore need to ensure that you tell us all about you, your goals, your career aspirations and any achievements to date. If you have an unusual hobby, you do work in the community or have undergone any special training please tell us. The Judges don’t want a CV or a UCAS statement, they want to know about the real you.
Last year’s winner:
Modupe Otunaiya, Tile Hill Wood School (Winner of the Rising Star in Secondary Education Award 2017)
“There is so much more of me to come. I am prepared to work hard for what I want and achieve in my career and life. I am self-motivated and always like to have a positive view on things. This award would show that I do not limit myself and can achieve anything I set my mind to. I believe we have the full potential to become who we want to be in life. As long as we have a positive aspect on things. I set a daily goal of adding a little bit of joy to someone else’s life. You never know what someone is going through, so by doing something as little as complimenting them or being kind or giving encouraging words you never know how far it really goes into bettering the person emotionally, mentally or physically. I value myself on being respectful and just being the best version of myself.”
“It was just so amazing to win the rising star in education award. It was an absolutely phenomenal experience. It gave me confidence about my future. Hearing other people’s stories just motivated me even more.” (Modupe Otunaiya)
“Modupe puts 100% in everything she does, be it Academic or Vocational. She is always positive and invariably looks for the good in everyone, encouraging all around her. She is an Inspiration to us all and is beautiful both inside & out. I have absolutely no doubt that Modupe will achieve and spread positivity & happiness in all she accomplishes in the future. She will be that Woman Who Achieves in that often complex, challenging World of Work. This award really inspired Modupe and will no doubt encourage her further”. (Chris Day, Careers Advisor & Work Experience Co-Ordinator – Tile Hill Wood School & Language College)
Modupe was chosen as the winner in this category because her application simply stood out. Whilst she is currently an true achiever in her school and sport, she has a clear idea of where she would like to go in the future and clearly has a perspective on life where she considers others. Congratulations! We wish Modupe all the best in her future studies.
Modupe wowed the audience with her positive attitude, her determination and her views on Mindset, during her interview with Dave Sharpe at the recent Woman Who…Achieves Network on 8th March Celebrating International Women’s Day #IWD2018
